On the Irish Government, its character and measures, the Constabulary Act, the Burial-Service Act, and Tithe Composition Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 March 1827

On the Irish Government, its character and measures, the Constabulary Act, the Burial-Service Act, and Tithe Composition Act. MY DEAR SIR, TAcITUS says, that after the battle of Actium and the Establishment in Rome of a despotic power, one of the effects which followed was, that truth became generally disregarded~; some departed from it through ignorance of what really happened, others became indiierent to it through a blind passion of approvingi *whatever was done by the government, whilst a hatred of those in power so filled the breasts. of another class, as to render them incapable of ascertaining correctly, or judging dispassionately of what occurred. THERE are more poinits of coincidence between the times referred to by Tacitus and those in which we live, than would perhaps strike a common observer; Rome even then had begun to sink under her own weight; her liberties had perished with Pompey, her grandeur consisted less of power than of show, and before the demise of Agustus al...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 March 1827

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, MARCH ,23, 1827. STRANGERS who-visited the Colony in Macquarie's   time inform us, that while the Town and Colony have increased in size and population, the spirit of enterprise and hearty cheer, good-humour, and sociability, have entirely disappeared; save mere inert magnitude and quantity, the Colony they say is tamer, duller, and less imposing by half than it was fifteen years ago--just as a palace in a state of decay looks less inviting and pros- perous than a snug cottage in complete repair and fresh white-washed. THERE is no effect but hath a cause. The ignorami of the Colony (i. e. Bigge and the Faction) who never see an inch beyond their own precious interests, allege that the present dilapidation of this country arises from the Government ceasing to support it with Treasury Bills as they used to do, and in lieu: making it support itself. We deny the position. The Crown of England never did support us, but as far as our infantile exertions h...

WE do wish X Y Z's patriotism would not induce him to .call Sir John Jamison's genteel and pleasant quarters on the Nepean, a palace. Sir °John's is really an elegant villa, and needs' co meretricious name, having real intrinsic merit of magnihiwle and con venience, and a due measure of elegance, to make it a truly enviable residence. But it is no palace. We for give the inexpedient patriotism of the writer, however, tfor his ludicrous and lively account of the tirantalopes, and for all the rest of his lively and happy, and we will add, accurate desctiptions. THEs Editor of the Australian. lays himself open .to animadversion from every man of candour and common sense, when he condercends to abuse his enemies for doing right. This was exemplified in the leader of the Australian, which goes 'to reflect on Mr. Carter for sitting .on a trial and voting for a verdict which has given universal satisfaction. The editor in his quarrels, ..has, no notion of magnanimity. The virtues of his en...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 March 1827

THBE MONITOR..*. FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 1827.. MANY persons think that General Darling will be able to justify a great many of his unpopular acts by,plead ing precedent, expediency, peculiar circumstances, and last but not least, positive instructions from home. We do not doubt but he may plead the latter with good effect in some few instances; wherever he can he ought to do so'; the colonists, however, have no right either to know or care who is the original author of bad measures -it justifies them to find fauilt if ench measures injure their interests. But there are many unpopular measures, about which it is next to impossible the Go vernor can have received instructions. For instance. No English Secretary of State would be so indecerit as to direct His Excellency to interfere with the Judges of the colony, and to call upon them to say whether the reports of their decisions in the newspapers were correct or not. Yet it is generally reported that His Excellency has acted in this manner...
